There was, unsurprisingly, a charity committee meeting at Yorkshire Moors scheduled for later that day. Surprisingly, one of the scheduled participants was Narcissa Malfoy. Draco continued to resist attending, or even returning to England, but finally agreed after Granger offered to mediate.

Severus waited outside the committee room – Yorkshire Moors had been built when arenas were more than concrete boxes and he had always enjoyed public art – until he was reasonably sure that neither Malfoy would kill the other. Then he apparated home to a good meal and his own bed.

Let the Malfoys settle their own disputes.

It should not have been a surprise that the next person who spoke was Hermione Granger. Potions, law enforcement, quidditch in Yorkshire – was there anything she could not do? “You have a point, Professor.”

“A point?” Draco gaped, shock in every line of his body. “You know Father threatened to disown me if I didn't marry Astoria! Speaking directly to him - “

“Would have been difficult, but remember, Astoria offered to go with you,” said Granger. Her voice softened. “Draco. I know you wanted to take a few days here, but you need to go home.”

A long-bodied bird swooped past, its calls all but lost in the breeze. Severus drummed his fingers and considered. “As charming as your tale of bonding over charity quidditch in a remote national park may be, it does not excuse Draco's behavior. If he wishes to break his engagement - “

“So does Astoria,” Draco interjected.

“ - he needs to be an adult about the situation and say so in public rather than running off to Thrace.” He ignored the hiss of rage from his old protege. “Especially to meet with a woman, platonic though it may be.”

The charity match had been set up to benefit victims of the Second War, with appearances by Viktor Krum, Oliver Wood, and numerous retired or semi-retired quidditch stars from the European League. He himself had been asked to referee, and it had been gratifying to be cheered instead of booed when he shook hands with Harry Potter.

“I hadn't realized you were involved,” he said after an awkward pause. “Nor was I aware that Draco was representing his family. I was under the impression Narcissa was the charitable one.”

“She was ill,” said Draco. “I took her place.”

“Yes. Friends. Nothing more.” Granger sheathed her wand with a bit more force than necessary. “Why would you think otherwise?”

“Because Draco vanished from a picnic with his fiancee, then showed up days later in Salisbury with a portkey for Thrace to 'meet a friend'.” Severus folded his arms. “What, pray tell, was I supposed to think?”

Draco scowled. “That it's none of your business.”

“Oh, to be sure. But a rendezvous with someone you cordially loathe - “

“Not since the charity quidditch match at Yorkshire Moors,” said Granger. “We served on the steering committee.”

Challenge 704: The Snapely Alphabet of Places - Yorkshire Moors

Home of a famous Quidditch pitch, it's apparently also close to Muggles settlements, since people have been known to come in search of what's causing the noise. Would Severus have occasion to go there? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Yorkshire Moors.

Her hair was still too thick and too curly, and her teeth were still a fraction too large, but her eyes were clear and her back straight as she raised her wand. “This was supposed to be a private meeting, Professor. If you threatened Draco - “

“Far from it.” Severus raised his hands so Hermione Granger, in resort wear rather than Auror's robes, could see he was unarmed. “I grabbed him.”

“That he did,” muttered Draco, brushing himself off. “Send him back.”

“Only if someone tells me what is going on.” Severus glared at Granger. “Friends?”

How Severus managed to grab Draco just as the portkey activated was not clear – his reflexes had been poor since his encounter with Nagini – but the two were locked in an unwilling embrace when they landed in what looked like the remains of an Ottoman fortress. Draco yanked free, snarling, and aimed his wand at his old teacher.

“How dare you. How dare you. My parents - “

“Think you dead, or coerced. At least let know them you've safe!” Severus held up his hands. “Draco - “

“Draco?” A woman spoke. “Is that you?”

“Yes, a friend. Nothing more.” Draco tossed back his drink, tossed down a few Muggle bills to cover his tab, and stood. “If you'll excuse me? I don't want to be late.”

“I've heard Xanthi is quite lovely this time of year,” Severus said, as casually as possible. Thrace, correct?”

“Please stop attempting to draw me out. I know my parents sent you, and believe me, I've no interest in arguing with them about my plans.” Draco narrowed his eyes. “Tell them I'm alive, well, and will speak to them when I return.”

“Draco - “

Severus raised an eyebrow. He'd seen the interest behind the animosity every time Potter and Draco had squared off even if he hadn't been one of the faculty who'd actively rooted for the two enemies to drop their wands and fling themselves into each other's arms. A mysterious rendezvous in Xanthi smacked of more than simple friendship.

At the same time, it could easily be someone else. Pansy Parkinson had never married, after all, and neither had Millicent Bulstrode. Even Blaise Zabini, snob that he was, made sense in a way that a Gryffindor simply didn't.

“A friend? How interesting.”

“So. What now?” Severus was on his second pint and had finally begun to relax. Draco might not have turned out quite the way his parents intended, but he had excellent taste in beer. “Go home tomorrow? Next week?”

Draco swallowed the last of his own beer and signaled for the menu. “I'm meeting a friend in Xanthi for a short vacation, then back to face my parents. Mum was never fond of Astoria so she'll be sympathetic. Father will be another story, but he'll come round when he realizes it's not a Potter.”

“Potter?”

“All rumors.”

Challenge 703: The Snapely Alphabet of Places - Xanthi

Okay, so did you know there are NO towns in England that starts with X? Like zero. Trust me on this, I have Googled. I did, however, find this town in Greece, which is in Europe, which is close to England, so it will have to do. So, would Severus go there? Why would he? Maybe he goes on holiday? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Xanthi, Greece.

Severus had not originally intended to visit Salisbury Cathedral, but it was such an obvious place to take sanctuary that he couldn't ignore it. Seeing a familiar white-blond head bent in prayer was both a relief and something of a surprise.

“Your family miss you,” he murmured, sliding into Draco's pew. “Astoria - “

“Loves someone else,” Draco replied. “So do I. My 'disappearance' was to give her time to explain this to her parents.”

“Well. That changes things.” Severus nodded. “I should ask you to stand me a drink.”

“Gladly,” said Draco, and meant it.

Longleat House was out – Madam Greengrass had already sent her confidential secretary to investigate – even if it hadn't been swarming with curious Muggles. Ditto Stonehenge and Avebury, the chalk horses at Westbury and Cherhill, King Alfred's folly, and most of the National Trust properties. Draco might have wished to walk away from his life, but mingling with Muggles was not in character.

Nonetheless, he spent several hours apparating from place to place, sending out his patronus, and waiting long enough to be sure Draco was not there. By nightfall he was almost out of ideas.

Where was Draco?

Draco was a skilled wizard who'd gotten his apparation license young and never splinched. Whatever had happened to him had to have been deliberate. Perhaps his blissful future with Astoria Greengrass might not be quite as blissful as their parents' might wish.

A young man stuck in an undesired engagement might well choose to leave. But where?

Fortunately Severus had spent enough time among Muggles to be familiar with tourist maps, including the henges, National Trust properties, and chalk figures of Wiltshire. There were plenty of places for one to take refuge from one's life, and Severus knew them all.

The situation became more interesting when it became evident that Draco not only had not returned from Villa Erba Verda, he had never arrived in the first place. “We assumed the young people had gone out,” said Madam Greengrass, raising her voice to heard over the crackle of the Floo and the wails of her daughter. “They were supposed to picnic on the grounds of Longleat House. There's a small Unplottable section where the Muggles never go.”

“Did he stop along the way? Apparate? Take the Floo?” Severus hesitated. “Take a car?”

“He apparated, of course,” said Lucius.

“Draco's gone missing,” said Lucius without preamble. “Find him.”

Severus put his feet up by the fire. His boots were wet and wanted drying, so almost kicking Lucius' face in the Floo was truly not his intent. “I have my duties at the school, as you well know. Also, Draco is an adult. Perhaps he's simply tired of tripping merrily through the peacock scat in the back garden.”

Lucius curled his upper lip. “He was supposed to be visiting his intended's home in Salisbury and never returned. It's been two days. He needs to be found.”

Severus considered. “Interesting.”

The location of Malfoy Manor, Wiltshire is a place with which Severus is familiar. Is there some other place in Wilshire that he visits perhaps? How often does Severus go there? However you see it, this week we discuss Snape and Wiltshire.
